A facile direct conversion of aldehydes to esters and amides using acetone cyanohydrin
Abstract Aromatic aldehydes with electron-withdrawing groups undergo rapid reactions with a variety of alcohols and secondary amines to afford the corresponding esters and amides, respectively, inExpand
Sulfonamide- and hydrazine-based palladium catalysts: Stable and efficient catalysts for C–C coupling reactions in aqueous medium
Syntheses of a novel family of sulfonamide-based palladium complexes and phenylhydrazine-based palladacycles are described. These catalysts are thermally stable, and not sensitive to air and moistureExpand
Asymmetric synthesis of (S)-vigabatrin® and (S)-dihydrokavain via cobalt catalyzed hydrolytic kinetic resolution of epoxides
A concise route to the asymmetric synthesis of (S)-vigabatrin® and (S)-dihydrokavain has been described using Co-catalyzed hydrolytic kinetic resolution of racemic epoxides and regiospecific openingExpand
Organocatalytic activation of TMSCN by basic ammonium salts for efficient cyanation of aldehydes and imines
Abstract Basic ammonium salts act as highly effective catalysts for the cyanosilylation of aldehydes and in Strecker-type aminonitrile synthesis using TMSCN as cyanide source at 25 °C under extremelyExpand
